Pothole Repair Contest
Contest Information
Potholes are an inevitable side effect of Midwestern winters. Annually, the Public Works Street Division sponsors the "Pothole of the Month" contest. The 2016 contest runs from January 1 through March 31.

On a monthly basis, the City awards a $50 gift certificate to the Moline resident who reports the largest pothole. All potholes are repaired within 48 hours or by the next working day following the report, weather permitting. You may enter the contest by calling us at 309.524.2407 or submit your name, phone number, address and the location of the pothole using our Online Service Request. Entries will be posted based upon the date and time the e-mail is received. Winners will be notified by mail. You may enter as many times as you wish; however, the award is given to the first entry received reporting the largest pothole.

Contest Rules
  1. The pothole must be a true pothole (not a trench failure or uncovered cut).
  2. Cracks alone aren’t considered potholes (unless they’re really wide).
  3. Prizes are awarded to the first Moline resident to report largest pothole (by volume). Calls are time-stamped by the operator; electronic entries are time-stamped when received by our server. Name, address and telephone number must be submitted in order to be considered.
  4. You may submit a pothole up until midnight on the last day of the month. Any entries submitted after that will be eligible for the next month’s award.
  5. You may only win once a year. If you are the first to report the largest pothole, but you already won that year, the award will go to the next person who reported the pothole. If no one else reported the pothole, the prize will go to the first person who reported the second largest pothole that month.
  6. Employees of the City of Moline and their immediate families are not eligible.
